windy. going up to 80 degrees here. take a look at the beach out here. this is chatham on cape cod. gorgeous, buear barely a ripplee water. all of the public beaches are reopening as long as they have lifeguards available and back on duty. but they did clock the highest tropical storm-force gusts here in chatham, 58 miles per hour last night. beautiful now, gorgeous now, but it was a mess last night. take a look. what happened to your car here? >> i was just driving down and it stalled out. >> reporter: did you not see the high water here? >> you can't see nothing. >> reporter: now what are you going to do? >> wait until the morning. it's trying to start, but it just won't. i usually drive a truck, you know what i mean? >> reporter: you can see it's halfway up the wheel base here and i see you have your companion over here. is that your dog? >> yeah, lilly. >> reporter: all right. well, good luck. not a great night to be out by any measure. look at the wake caused by that pickup truck going by. it's a mess out here. very few cars out on the road. they should not be out on the road.

to bring nasty weather to coastal towns in massachusetts and even maine. bring in paul goodloe in chatham, massachusetts. how are you doing? >> reporter: i'm doing all right here in chatham on the cape. cape cod as well as martha's n vineyard and nantucket. the good news throughout the day is after it brought some strong winds and some heavy rain to north carolina, hurricane earl is now weakening down to a category 1. that's good news and hope it continues to weaken and the concern is just because it's weakening doesn't mean it's perhaps a summer shower coming on through here. by the least. we are still concerned with the strong winds because think of this hurricane as a 18 wheeler. at one point, this was 145-mile-per-hour hurricane. think of that 18 wheeler hauling down the highway. it is not putting on the brakes now. just letting the gas off and slowly coasting down so all the large hurricane effects are still slowly winding down. looks calm out here. been calm since we've been here for latter part of the week here in chatham harbor and a barrier island allowing the area to be calm.
